Adventure Comics # 406, May, 1971

Yet another new direction begins here with a new, if far too quickly established, setting. Nicely designed cover but unfortunately the Sekowsky/Giordano artwork seems....well...odd...and just doesn't work.

This was the same period when Murphy Anderson and Al Plastino were regularly utilized for pasteovers of Superman family characters in Jack Kirby's titles in order to keep them on-model. Little known fact: It wasn't just Kirby. Apparently DC management wasn't thrilled with Big Mike's Clark either as these panels clearly show a redrawn Murphy Anderson version.

The story was inked, as it usually was in this period, by Jack Abel...who seems to have felt the need to inform us of this on Page 14 for some reason.
